"This new system is based on the system previously developed by Sony Global Education for the authentication, sharing and management of educational data rights, as well as features for processing information related to rights, "the statement said.

The press release goes on to say that the rights management system will focus on "written works". Sony's blockchain claims will allow content information to be immutably recorded.

The exact details of the implementation and deployment of this system have not been clarified. Sony however indicated that it was considering marketing the system as a service.
